General Baek Sun-yeop, the first 4-star general of the Korean Army, died today (11th). Together with Mayor Park Won-soon, who left first, two people posed a big question to our society. Both have light and shadow. As the figures will be recorded in Korean modern history, the contrast is bigger and more prominent. There is a lot of debate going on over how to evaluate this contrast and how to live right. Today we will deliver these phenomena without bias. First, let's go to Seoul National University Hospital where Mayor Park Won-soon is the representative site of this debate. Reporter connects.

Seoul National University Hospital, people from all walks of life, including former Chairman of the National Assembly, Moon Hee-sang and Cardinal Yeom Soo- jung, visited today and commemorated the deceased.

Citizens' incense institutes in Seoul City Hall were also greeted from 11:00 am, but by 7:30 in the evening, more than 6,000 mourners visited them.

Even now, more than 100 visitors are standing in a line around the Seoul Plaza, but they are available until 10 PM.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government was concerned about infection, so only the citizens wearing masks were able to remember the fever and omitted the wreaths and kept silent.

Incense camps were established in Changnyeong, Gyeongnam, the hometowns of Daegu, Jeonju, Ulsan, and Park, and more than 300,000 people visited the online incense camps on the Seoul website.


There was something noisy in the field.


Some citizens were in tears or enthusiasm in search of incense burners. Among them, there was also a quarrel between furious mourners, conservative propensity groups, and YouTubers.

There was a sporadic conflict between citizens and memorials who opposed the way the city held a funeral hosted by the city in Seoul.

Police were dispatched due to swearing and going back and forth, but fortunately there were no cases of physical conflict.


It was decided that the funeral schedule will be decided in the future.


Three co-chairmen were appointed to lead the funeral.

On behalf of civil society, political affairs, and Seoul, Baek Nak-cheung, an emeritus professor of Seoul National University, Lee Hae-chan, and Democratic Party representative, and Seoul Metropolitan Mayor Seo Jeong-hyup, first vice mayor of Seoul.

The funeral process has also been decided. On the morning of the 13th, after the ceremony at the Seoul City Hall, the makeup will be done at the Seoul Memorial Park, and then we will go to Seonyeong, Changnyeong, Gyeongnam.

The funeral committee and the survivors explained that the body of the deceased was found late at night and that they had no choice but to take a five-day job because of the family who was staying abroad.

Park Joo-shin, a son known to have stayed in the UK, entered the country today and was reported to be in a coronary vacancy.
